Hey I got a scholarship from Penn State and a need based grant that will add up around 22,000/yr. My question is about the cost of living at the school and how much room and board will cost

Sorry, I have been very busy. Will try to answer all the questions. If I left you out, repost, or PM me.

Also, let me again apologize for my lack of professionalism earlier. That does not represent the school well, which is what I came here to do. I will not respond to another antagonistic comment, and I am sorry for doing so in the first place. I do not need to defend Penn State Law or myself. We are both doing just fine.

Now for the questions:

If you want to live your freshman dorm experience all over again, except this time with alcohol (my undergrad was dry in the dorms), then live in whitecourse. I don't live there, that was not something that was appealing to me. But we are all different. Some people I know love it, and have been successful living in whitecourse.

standard for any law school approx 60 in each section, like 20 in each legal writing section.

I want to keep it confidential. Let's just say I am lucky and I work hard at school and networking. I believe everyone can do the same, and with some luck, you can land great jobs.

Congratulations! You are in an excellent position. Cost of living is going to be probably the lowest of every school you get into. Plan on $400-600 for rent, inexpensive food, etc.

Hey!

Just so everyone knows, there is another thread with a few Penn State students taking questions: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=130990

We could probably combine the two and get everyone asking and answering in the same place!
